Gooey Butter Cookies (from scratch!)

Gooey Butter Cookies (from scratch!)

When I worked in St. Louis, I had to order a lot of casual catered lunches. Most of these involved a tray of cookies. As a home baker, I’m really particular about my sweets, and so I would almost never eat any cookie leftovers –…

Double Chocolate Caramel Chip Cookies

Double Chocolate Caramel Chip Cookies

I’m addicted to these cookies. One of my resolutions for 2019 was to try a new or different cookie recipe each week. Well, I’ve given it up. I can’t stop making (and eating) these Double Chocolate Caramel Chip Cookies, which are perhaps my favorite cookie…

Cookie Bars!

Cookie Bars!

Even after countless cookie recipes I’ve made on this blog, one of my favorite sweets to make is these cookie bars. They only take 5 ingredients, and no mixing bowl! They’re so incredibly easy and hands-off to make. And so incredibly delicious. I always keep…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

These delicious, gooey Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars epitomize compromise. For instance, you need to make a dessert for a potluck. You want to make cookies for a potluck. But you don’t really want to make cookies for a potluck. You know, the dough-scooping. Making sure cookies…

White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread

I first made these White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread cookies as my 279th recipe of 2010. For some reason, it’s taken me years to get around to making them again. Perhaps I forgot about them among all my recipes for brownies and rich bar cookies. And that’s…

These Chocolate Toffee Cracker Cookies are seriously the best. They’re addictive. When I make these, Alex and I polish them off in about a day. Not only are they delicious; they take only 4 ingredients (5 if you top them with nuts), and you’re done…

Pecan Pie Cookies

Pecan Pie Cookies

I like pecan pie, but I don’t love it. Even at its best (and the pecan pie recipe I use turns out well whenever I make it), it’s a little too gooey for my taste. Pecans are my favorite nut, so I enjoy a slice,…

Fudgy Bourbon Balls

Fudgy Bourbon Balls

I finally wised up and stopped making so many cookies and baked goods to ship to friends and family for the holidays. In 2015, I started making these fudgy bourbon balls as one of my food gifts. In every package I send, I give a…
